Fiber One Banana Muffins with a little Somethin Extra

Hello everyone,

I love Fiber One products.  I usually pack a Fiber One Bar as a snack when I’m going to work because they are yummy and filling


I really like the Fiber One Banana Nut Muffin mix.  Mixes like these are easy because there’s no measuring dry ingredients and all you usually need is an egg, water, and some vegetable oil.  I am one to play around with adding different things to these mixes to change it up and I found a combo that is and I quote “perfect” by my boyfriend’s manager.

You will need what the box calls for EXCEPT only one tablespoon of the oil because I also add: 2 ripe bananas and mini chocolate chips!  I actually made the last batch with half chocolate chips and half without and they both tasted super yummy!

Another Fall twist on Banana Nut Muffins: Add Pumpkin


Nutrition Facts (found on the back of the box):


Why I like Fiber One Products:
  • In case you didn’t know…fiber is good for you!  
    • It adds bulk to your digestive track to keep it working therefore promotes regularity (thank you anatomy class).  
    • It also helps you to feel fuller longer so when you eat something with a substantial amount of fiber, you are more satisfied and won’t be grabbing for a snack in an hour.
  • I also like that whole wheat flour is the second ingredient in the Banana Nut Muffins.

What I don’t Like:
  • The long ingredient list.  But they are a processed food, so I’m not sure I’d expect anything else.
Adding the bananas to the mix is a bonus because it extends the amount of muffins you can make as well as adding potassium.  The chocolates just make them plain delicious and are best when they are warm.

  
I microwave them for 10-15 seconds before eating..unless of course they are fresh out of the oven!
Let me know what you think about the Fiber One Banana Muffins! 
As always, comments are welcome!  Happy fiber-filled baking!
